Going Way Back With Asbestos
Do you know why you are not feeling well? Do you understand what has caused you to be so tired all the time and unable to breathe as easily as you did before? The fact that you breathed in asbestos probably never even crossed your mind.
This is a dilemma for some patients. They are sick now and do not realize that the link goes back almost 30 years when they worked on a dock or a ship and were unknowingly exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. There is a case where a patient realizes that he was exposed to asbestos when he worked on a vessel over thirty years ago. This is what has caused the development of mesothelioma in his lungs. Currently, this patient is in desperate need to find his past co-workers. He is trying to piece together the working conditions in which he was exposed to the asbestos. It has been so many years he cannot quite remember the details and hopes to find others to help him fill in the holes in his memory.
Why Look Back
This need to recollect the memories of his past is not for nostalgic reasons. It is because this asbestos has caused him to develop a disease that has no cure, mesothelioma. There are treatment options, however, which focus on pain management, not curing the disease. Treatment could include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery or any combination of these three procedures. Your treatment strategy will depend on factors such as your age, past medical history or progression of the mesothelioma. After a thorough examination, your doctor will be able to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Understanding where you were exposed to asbestos will help you determine liability. Filing a claim against an employer from 30 years ago may sound unattainable, but it may be a viable option for you. Your focus should be about getting better and stronger. But the reality of the situation is that you have mesothelioma because of the possible negligence of a former employer. There are laws in place to protect your right to work in a safe environment even if the environment is not determined unsafe until many years after you have worked there. You have and will continue to incur hefty medical bills that a mesothelioma attorney may be able to get reimbursed. Do not be hesitant to speak to a mesothelioma attorney.
